HC Deb 11 April 1946 vol 421 c345W
Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Health in how many cases completion of temporary and permanent houses is being delayed due to the inability to obtain the essential paint or laid piping, or lead for other purposes.

Mr. Bevan:

I cannot say exactly how many houses may be affected at present, but I am aware of the difficulties, and in conjunction with my colleagues am taking steps to meet them. As regards lead, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Chippenham on 4th April.
